Jenny served as the Educator and Outreach Specialist at the Missoula Art Museum from 2018-2021 and helped develop the award winning distance learning platform, Museum as Megaphone, and the Art Host Initiative which connects Tribal nations across Montana with the museum to share contemporary Indigenous art. She has been a workshop leader for Humanities Montana since 2016.
